I was looking to purchase a 2005 Tiger with no luggage. How difficult will it be to find oem bags for this bike?

Thanks,
Mick

Best bike I've every owned, and I've owned many in my 23 years on two wheels. The most versatile *mainly street* motorcycle there is. I personally would wait until one comes up with bags. However, if the one you're looking at is a good deal... you can always go aftermarket and buy GIVI, etc.

Hey Mick...
too bad....
this week was the Eastern USA Tiger Ride-In in Ferguson, NC at Riders Roost.
You could have visited and probaly rode a few Tigers.

The Triumph Tiger is like the old Kawasaki Concours. Owners love 'em; Can't get squat when they sell 'em; Then regret they ever did sell it!

Pick your poison:
Super slab; 2 -lane; Canyon Carver; Urban Street Fighter; Dirt Road; hard packed off road and forest trails; ( We had a blast at the WV Tiger ride-In last year riding forest trails ).

Hey TigerTrax I hate I missed that one too. I did get to ride an '08 this weekend and LOVED it. Thought it might be to tall for me at 6' and 31.5 inseam. But was able to get both feet on the ground. Are the 955's hard to come by?

Thanks,
Mick

'05 not hard to find.
Find one with the luggage... it may not have OEM top box... that was NOT part of bike...
a good one goes for $400+.

.
So grab a Tiger and see us end of August in Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Next week I am headed for P'Cola, FL then over to the Bayou state and ride some back roads.

Mick..come see us at tigertriple.com you may see a bike for sale

This spring I picked up an '05 with factory side bags with only 5,180mi. on it for $5,500. The deals are out there if you watch for them. I scanned Craig's list nationwide for over a year.
